Walking Ferrets and Bumpy Hair

Sunday afternoon, we made a last minute decision to go to Branson and make a trip to Silver Dollar City. The weather was perfect. In fact, it was my first time to go to SDC and not sweat or freeze.

As we were driving through Branson we saw MANY interesting sights. You see all kinds of things in that town. I think that is why we love it so much. There is never a dull moment. We had our windows rolled down and I spotted a couple walking what looked like two tiny dogs. I quickly discovered that they each were walking a ferret on a leash. I have never seen that before. We all got a kick out of that.
When we got to the hotel Emily drew me a picture, handed it over and said,"look, your walking a ferret!" I will save this picture forever. She always draws Steve small and says he is too big to fit on the page. She always draws me with "bumpy hair" as she calls it.

Thank you again for praying for my Dad! He is doing fine. He has a TERRIBLE cough. Please pray that this will get well soon too.

I was in Branson this weekend, also. The weather was awesome! We spent our Sunday at the outlet mall. Wasn't the traffic crazy! Oh my!

Haha that's hilarious! Did she ever tell you WHY you're walking a ferret?

My word, Sarah Kate is really growing up. In the last few photos you have posted it is so noticeable. Both your girls are beautiful. Who do each of them favor? It's hard to tell without seeings pics of you and Steve as kids. My parents lie to go to Branson, though it is quite a drive for them. My friend Wes works up here near Chicago on contracting jobs as an engineer but lives near Branson, but just over the border in Arkansas. He goes home about once a month. Glad your Daddy is improving. Still will continue to pray. Hugs, Genah

Those are some precious girls!!!! Love Emily's drawing - she is such a little artist. And the bumpy hair cracked me up. The inventors of FreezeIt can be proud of what they are given to the art world. :-)

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
